This video was created by one of the parents who came with his children to one of our classes. It captures the excitement of a school's art trip at Corban Estate Arts Centre! We are delighted to be able to provide children great experiences that they will remember the rest of their lives!

Our Arts Education for schools programme based on the NZ National Curriculum, addresses achievement objectives for all levels of students (Years 1-13). We aim to facilitate effective partnerships with schools and classroom teachers which will lead to successful learning outcomes for all students.
